Ipsy December 2014 Review

Ipsy in a monthly beauty subscription. It is $10 a month, and you receive a makeup bag filled with 4-5 products including deluxe samples and full size products. You can sign up here:

I actually didn't like the bag at first... then I realized I could put all my new Stabilo marker pens in it!! Woot!! I will blog about those later! :)

[the product]: Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 mascara [0.10 oz]

[the color]: Black - Like a pushup bra for your lashes, tarte’s best-selling mascara lengthens, curls, volumizes and conditions to deliver a 330% increase in lash volume instantly. The high-performance formula is also infused with naturally-derived olive esters to help nourish and protect lashes. 

[my thoughts]: It's ok... it is going to be hard to steal me away from my favorite mascara right now, which is UD Perversion!

[the worth]: $8.58 - I think... the math was really hard for me this morning! LOL

[the product]: Bumble and bumble Bb Repair Blow Dry [0.5 oz]

[the scent]: You know how I love good scents!! This is one of those! Fresh and fruity! Love it!

[my thoughts]: Well, first of all, it was stuck to an info card and I am STILL trying to get the glue and paper off of the tube! Yuck! I also need to change my profile since I cut all my hair off... but I still blow dry so I will definitely try this! 

[the worth]: $3.75

[the product]: Cailyn Cosmetics Just Mineral Eye Polish [0.09 oz] FULL SIZE!

[the color]: #5 Orchid

[my thoughts]: I didn't have high hopes for this product, but after trying it, I really like it! I love the color and the formula... and it's nice to put on the inside corner of the eye, either alone or over liner. 

[the worth]: $15.00 - I do think their prices are a bit inflated!

[the product]: Nourish Organic Renewing Eye Cream [0.5 oz]

[the scent]: Meh. It doesn't really smell that much, but the scent I get is kind of stale... 

[my thoughts]: I can ALWAYS use more eye cream, so I will definitely be trying this! 

[the worth]: $6.75 - this isn't actually on their website yet, so I used the price of the face cream

[the product]: NYX Butter Lip Balm [0.14 oz] FULL SIZE!

[the color]: Parfait - it's a really pretty pink! 

[my thoughts]: This smells and tastes fantastic!! I am kind of a lip balm whore, so I will always use another lip balm, especially one with a little color!! This is so butter smooth too!! 

[the worth]: $4.00

I thought this bag and contents were totally worth $10!! 

[the total worth]: $38.30
